With new trends coming up almost every day, women always want to add one-of-a-kind and creative outfits in their wardrobe. When it comes to Indian wear, Tacfab offers specialized customized stitching services. This involves basic stitching of unstitched suit pieces, customized stitching as per the customer’s preferences and last but not the least, customized designing that is about creating a beautiful ethnic wear outfit from scratch!
We spent some time with Tacfab’s designing team and here’s how our tête-à-tête with their chief designer was.
-Please tell us something about Tacfab’s customized stitching services. Do we have an entire set up which takes care of end-to-end stitching and designing?
Ans: We offer all kinds of stitching services, including for ethnic wear, Indo-western outfits, western outfits and so on. In fact, we are happy to help customers with recreating and redesigning their older outfits too. So I would put the services we offer in 3 buckets: Basic Stitching, Customised Stitching & Customized/Personalized Designing.
We do have an elaborate stitching crew and set-up which is well-certified and experienced for designing and stitching. The team includes a Designing Manager, an Assistant Manager to oversee things, the skilful Cutting Master & many talented stitching tailors. We also have a separate alteration team which is solely responsible for readymade products.
-For what kind of outfits does Tacfab offer customized stitching services?
Ans: We offer stitching for unstitched suit pieces, semi-stitched suits, sarees, kurtis, lehengas, bridal ethnic wear, gowns, et al. Our customization services include everything from scratch, incorporating inputs from the designers as per the customers’ preferences.
-Do we also offer customized stitching for unstitched suits and other fabrics that a customer has not bought from Tacfab?
Ans: Yes, we do! We offer customized stitching & designing for unstitched suits for all, even if the product is not bought from Tacfab. There are customers who are very happy about our stitching and consider us a dependable option when it comes to working on their outfits for special occasions as well as daily wear. They visit us for all kinds of stitching, designing and embellishment related needs for Indian wear.
We believe in offering the best to our customers and thus, this is also an important part of the customized stitching services at Tacfab.
-What kind of value add do people ask for in regular outfits? Or any creative ones that Tacfab would have suggested?
Ans: We provide various kinds of embellishments, beautiful embroideries & other value additions on even the simplest of outfits. By this I don’t mean making the outfit heavy but making it stylish and creative while maintaining the subtlety. Some that we have done are designer neck lines, creative styling of sleeves, hand-made tassels & buttons in various shapes, hand embroidery for highlights, dupatta designing, adding tassles on dupattas, fancy and unique buttons, brooches, potli buttons with different silhouettes and so on. One very interesting one was an animal-shaped tassle and a big floral hanging on the lehenga.
-Does Tacfab also offer customized designing services in case someone wants to create a collection for their trousseau? If yes, how does this go about?
Ans: Yes! We provide trousseau and bridal customization & designing services. So, for this firstly we discuss with the bride and try to understand her requirements, likes and dislikes, and basically try to get an understanding of her personality to be able to create an outfit in which she will feel confident. Then we start designing the trousseau and bridal outfits from scratch. At times we also source the fabrics as per the preference and requirements of the customers.
For instance, we recently did the trousseau styling and designing for a wedding, which included the family members of the bride and groom as well. This means that there was a huge bunch of outfits that we worked on in coordination with the families, and we absolutely enjoyed doing every bit of it!
-From our experience, what is the one customized outfit that is your personal favourite? Please share details of what all went into creating it and what the final product looked like.
Ans: About two weeks ago, we made a designer Anarkali suit out of an old saree that a customer brought. The Anarkali had 16 kalis and the flare came out really well. We also sourced matching fabrics for the yoke, bottom, dupatta and laces. We converted a plain dupatta into a heavy designer piece and it absolutely gorgeous on our client.
It took approximately 2-3 days to get the final product ready. To our delight, the client was super happy with the result and was almost unsure that we had used her old saree to create this designer piece. In her words, ‘It looked like a new readymade product!’
-What does the rate card of customized stitching with Tacfab look like? How much does the customization cost?
Ans: The normal stitching for suits with a few embellishments costs around Rs. 1600 (with lining) with options of different patterns for the bottom. Without lining, it would costs Rs. 1100.
If the customer goes for personalized designing and customisation, then the charges are a bit higher considering the amount of time it takes, the type of designing that goes into it, the raw material consumption/sourcing & the additional tailor charges.
-Anything else that you would like to add? Or share with all the women out there?
Ans: With so much happening all around, women prefer readymade Indian wear outfits and this has become a common practice in the recent times. The benefit of getting a customised/designed outfit is that you can get it as per your comfort and style preference with it being made in a unique pattern which no one else can have. That’s the beauty of personalized stitching & designing and ensures you have a one-of-a-kind wardrobe that you are truly in love with.
With Tacfab’s expertise in the industry, we offer a hassle-free and easy customized stitching experience and ensure that you don’t have to give too much time or worry about the little details. We are here to make it all happen for you!
So go on, try a customized ethnic wear outfit this season and gift yourself a unique wardrobe!
